Philadelphia isn't the only city without a Super Bowl.
Here's a list of franchises (as of 2008) to never win the coveted Lombardi trophy.
Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks.
Prior to 1966 there was no Super Bowl.
In 1966 those league champions faced off for the World Championship, or the Super Bowl Championship. So while a number of the teams listed haven't won a Super Bowl, they were league champions prior to the Super Bowl era .Here are some of the NFL Champions , Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions,, Arizona/Chicago Cardinals. Here are some of AFL Champions ,Buffalo Bills, Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans, and San Diego Chargers. Most other teams are expansion teams after the Super Bowl began . And if you want to get technical the Cleveland Browns became the Baltimore Ravens in 1995 when Art Modell moved the team, in 2000 the Ravens won the Super Bowl. However, the current Browns have owned the rights to the previous Browns history since 1999 when they reemerged as an expansion team. So in essence, the Ravens are now more like the expansion team since 1996, and it's like the Browns just went on hiatus from 1996 to 1999.
Speaking of expansion teams the dallas cowboys joined the NFL as a 1960 expansion team.The eagles have won three NFL championship games Prior to 1966. The first two Eagles wins were back to back shutouts
|1948||Philadelphia Eagles||7-0||Chicago Cardinals|
|1949||Philadelphia Eagles (2)||14-0||Los Angeles Rams|
|1960||Philadelphia Eagles (3)||17-13||Green Bay Packers|
My point , the statement that always surfaces from cowboys fans how many superbowl rings do the Eagles actually have none technically.But they were winning NFL Championship games before the cowboys existed.
Some sports fans seem to vacillate between acknowledging and not acknowledging that the NFL did indeed exist prior to 1966. Even during the Eagles-Cards game the commentators said something to the effect of "the Eagles long post-season heartbreak continues" and then in nearly the same breath said "this will be the first time in 61 years that the Cardinals franchise has made it to the NFL championship game." Well, which is it? Because if the Eagles had made it to the Super Bowl, it would have been their third appearance since 1980 and their sixth appearance in the championship game overall.
